Chicago! Want a FREE copy of my memoir?

From the University of Chicago Barnes & Noble, comes this cool offer:
We’re planning a special event to slow down the pace and give you a little inspiration before finals! The University of Chicago Barnes & Noble is opening its doors for a fun evening of discussion, laughter and FREE books -- but we need your help!

Here's how it works: If Kambri gets 50 RSVPs, she will join us in Chicago, and each of you lucky supporters will get a FREE hardcover copy of her book at the event. She’ll personally autograph it, too. Cool! 
But you must RSVP here to make it happen.
Kambri Crews, comedic storyteller and author of the highly acclaimed new memoir Burn Down the Ground (Random House) is one of our top picks. We'll chat with Kambri about what it was like to grow up with two deaf parents, and how her upbringing in rural Texas shaped who she is today. To vote for Kambri, RSVP now through this page!
A renowned storyteller and public speaker, Kambri Crews has performed on The Moth, Risk!, UCB Theatre, Gotham Comedy Club and given speeches at Illinois State University, Rutgers, University of Oregon, DeafHope, and many other schools, colleges, venues and events.  Learn more about her at

"Poignant and unsettling." —Kirkus Reviews

"A compelling testament to the strength of the human spirit.”—Booklist

"Crews' account (the title refers to lighting brush on fire to clear out snakes) is as well-paced and stirring as a novel. In her fluid narrative (she's also a storyteller on the side, a gig that helped her develop this book), Crews neither wallows in self-pity nor plays for cheap black-comedic yuks. Instead, this book stands out for what matters most: Crews' story, bluntly told." —Elle magazine

“Harrowing…A remarkable odyssey of scorched earth, collateral damage, and survival." —Publishers Weekly
